Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50086121
  • Date: 1 February 2007
  • Public Authority: Hertfordshire County Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested information on private equity investments made by the council. The council refused to supply some of the information on the basis that it was subject to a confidentiality agreement between it and various investment organisations (section 41). The Commissioner's decision is that the information should be disclosed on the basis that the public interest in knowing that public funds are being invested wisely overrides the public interest in protecting confidentiality in this instance.
